Tellabs has unveiled the 8000 Network Manager release 17 designed to help service providers anticipate and prevent network storms by offering a better view of network pipes and operations. Its VPN provisioning tool provides enhanced transparency for pseudowires and tunnels.
The release 17 also enhances usability and workflow by offering enhanced mass service configuration tools. It makes service provisioning more convenient with customizable automated wizards, procedures and templates.
"The Tellabs (News - Alert) 8000 manager helps service providers handle everyday network routines more easily, cost-efficiently and flexibly," said Mika Heikkinen, vice president and general manager, Tellabs Finland. "With simple and user-friendly point-and-click operations, users can view the exact traffic path hop by hop as well as the status of individual pseudowires and tunnels."
The most remarkable tool offered by the new release is a performance trend analysis tool, which monitors network traffic and use, and calculates traffic trends. This not only improves network optimization, but also helps service providers cut costs and plan better.
The Tellabs 8000 manager release 17 takes manageability to the optical layer and DSL, allowing service providers to offer managed services right from existing IP MPLS, Ethernet, ATM, FR, TDM, PDH and SDH services to high capacity DWDM and DSL services.
The Tellabs 8000 manager supports multi vendor network environments both in mobile and fixed infrastructures.
Tellabs caters to a wide range of customers including wireline, wireless and cable TV companies, as well as government agencies. Among the key solutions offered by the company are Tellabs IntegratedMobile, Tellabs DynamicHome, Tellabs MultiservicePLuSSM and Tellabs AssuredEthernetSM.
In addition, Tellabs Global Services provides professional services for networks. TMCnet recently reported that BT (News - Alert) Group has selected Tellabs to provide solutions for part of its Ethernet-based mobile backhaul service.
